Alexandr Usatii claims that four members were not invited to the July meeting of the Local Organization Council, three of whom are members of the party's Republican Council, when Alexandr Nesterovschi was nominated as leader of the Balti Territorial Organization of the PSRM .

"Why are we making this statement only now? I hoped that the party leadership would admit its mistake and try to correct it ", added Usatii.

Veaceslav Zelenetschi noted that Alexandr Nesterovschi did not enjoy respect among party members.

"The decision to leave is a difficult one, but we cannot act otherwise. We cannot be hypocrites with ourselves, but also with people who trust us ", Zelenetschi concluded.
